Every Friday the Wall Street Journal has a crossword puzzle contest. It’s a meta puzzle based on the solution to the puzzle. It’s always tricky and John and I usually work on it together. So what better food for our mental gymnastics than fish?!
John cooked the salmon mostly on the skin side and kept it quite rare in the middle. I made the yellow rice and the green beans. The green beans were cooked in a little water, oil, and a slice of ham. When the water evaporated the beans crisped up in the oil and the ham seared. (For pescetarians omit the ham.)
Brain food helped! We sent our solution to the puzzle in and hope we will win the prize this week!
